The episode: “Teenage Crime Wave,” ep. 522
The riff: Said indignantly by Tom as a short-haired woman attempts to drink alone in a bar and a man with a “pushed-in face” sizes her up.
The explanation: Judy Carne is a British actress most notably remembered for her appearances on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. On the show, she played a kind of ditzy girl who would end sketches by saying “Sock it to me!” before getting doused in water. This became the show’s most famous catch phrase, with even President Nixon trying to ride it in his ill-fated appearance. Later in life, Carne published a biography called “Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside: The Bittersweet Saga of the Sock-It-To-Me Girl,” which chronicled her struggles with drugs, her bisexuality and her two-year marriage to Burt Reynolds in the 1960s.
Novelty factor: I didn’t know the name, but I’m obviously familiar with her appearances on Laugh-In.
